June 28, 2021: Pride Playlist, and Pandemic Thoughts for Next Year
Pride Month is a difficult time for me this year, and I am reflecting on what is important about it and what I want to bring to future Pride celebrations. I encourage you to listen and think about decolonization and anti-racism work in our Prides after the pandemic, and to explore why Pride is important and so fiercely valued by the 2SLGBTQIA+ communities. As well, consider the perspectives of those who don’t enjoy Pride, those who have felt unwelcome, and those we need to shift our movement to centre and include. I’ve interspersed these heavy thoughts with some dance mixes and powerful songs that capture the Pride feelings I’m missing.
